Just before heading off with the family to Galveston over Memorial weekend, I had the opportunity to attend the Splunk Live Dallas event!

Business leaders are different than regular people. When they hear the word “disaster,” they don’t think about how to run or hide. No. They think: How will we recover from this? What should we have done to prevent it?

As cyber security threats continue to increase, Small Businesses need to constantly assess and resolve their IT vulnerabilities.
These days, no business can avoid the issue of cybersecurity. From agriculture to software development, small businesses that want to take advantage of today's technology need to recognize the consequent need to find and maintain system security.

What is Ransomware? Everywhere you look, it seems like there's a new eye-popping statistic that illustrates the threat posed by ransomware, whether it's the yearly growth rate of 350% percent, or the fact that it's expected to cause over $5 billion in damages in 2017 alone.
